ACTIVITIES & SCHEDULE

ACTIVITIES:
Creative playtime is important.  I do not under estimate its importance on a growing child's mind, body and spirit. Therefore, the children under my care receive lots of both free and structured-play throughout each day. For ages two through five, I offer a structured preschool curriculum.

During structured-play, I will primarily have only one group of toys or activity out at a time in order to allow the children to concentrate fully on each thing they do. Age appropriate activities will be scheduled with the flexibility allowed to respond to the needs of each individual child and their various ages.

For infants and those under 24 months, the day can vary depending on the child's developmental stage needs, diapering and feeding times. I am able to provide information for daily updates through a mobile app called Daily Connect (if requested).

DAILY SCHEDULE:
This schedule is meant to give you a general idea of your child's day. Actual times and activities may vary depending on time of the year, weather, age and temperament & needs of the children. Age appropriate activities are scheduled with the flexibility allowed to respond to the needs of each individual child and their various ages.
